Product Description

Introduce your students into the fascinating world of mathematical functions. This set of 40 task cards will ask each student to complete a table given a special rule and determine the specific rule used to generate the table. Use this activity as an oral presentation by each student to the class, as a timed activity, an activity to begin class, as an additional activity for someone who has finished early, or as a homework assignment.

The activities will meet the common core standards for your students in number sense. Some standards met in this booklet include:

CCSS.Math.Content.4.OA.C.5 Generate a number or shape pattern that follows a given rule. Identify apparent features of the pattern that were not explicit in the rule itself. For example, given the rule “Add 3” and the starting number 1, generate terms in the resulting sequence and observe that the terms appear to alternate between odd and even numbers. Explain informally why the numbers will continue to alternate in this way.

CCSS.Math.Content.5.OA.B.3 Generate two numerical patterns using two given rules. Identify apparent relationships between corresponding terms. Form ordered pairs consisting of corresponding terms from the two patterns, and graph the ordered pairs on a coordinate plane. For example, given the rule “Add 3” and the starting number 0, and given the rule “Add 6” and the starting number 0, generate terms in the resulting sequences, and observe that the terms in one sequence are twice the corresponding terms in the other sequence. Explain informally why this is so.

CCSS.Math.Content.8.F.A.1 Understand that a function is a rule that assigns to each input exactly one output. The graph of a function is the set of ordered pairs consisting of an input and the corresponding output.

All problems have an answer guide included. May your student’s skills and knowledge improve with each activity.

Task card topics:

Input rule to generate and output.
